Lost a loved one in a drunk driving accident?

Losing a loved one is difficult to go through. When a life is taken in a drunk driving accident, wrapping your head around the loss can be particularly challenging.

It should be no surprise that his Chevy Cobalt slammed into a stopped vehicle at an intersection and flipped onto its roof.

Drunk driving death rates in Illinois and Missouri

Give thanks for staying safe on the roads over Thanksgiving

It’s officially late autumn, but of course if you step outside on an early morning, you might be forgiven for thinking that winter has arrived in the Edwardsville area. One of the upsides of winter (or late fall) is that it’s also holiday season.
